Summary
The story of Elizabeth Gaskell's novella The Moorland Cottage takes place in a modest cottage near the town of Combehurst where Mrs. Browne lives with her two children, Edward and Maggie, along with their servant, Nancy. In her description of their daily life, Gaskell mainly insists on showing how the mother unfairly favors the boy over the girl. While she overtly spoils Edward, she keeps on treating Maggie in a very harsh way, never showing her any motherly love or tenderness. Gaskell also shows how Maggie is pushed to accept this inequality in the family and how she even starts to justify it and explain it. Near the Brownes' cottage lives the Bruxton family in a big and luxurious house. Mr. Bruxton and his good-hearted wife behave in a very humane way with their neighbors. They equally have a son and a niece, Frank and Erminia, who attempt to befriend Edward and Maggie. Yet, the Bruxtons soon discover the huge difference in character and behavior between the brother and the sister. While falling in love with Maggie's goodness and light personality, they are struck by Edward's rudeness and selfishness. Nonetheless, with time, the two families get closer and their life and future become connected. As the two families' children grow older, the readers see the impact of their childhood education on their adult personality. Maggie's interaction with the Bruxtons makes her look at things in a different way and see the faults in her brother's and mother's characters
